Default Speaking of braided line?

The first braid I bought was in the early to mid 1990's and it was white. It was flat as you could see the line twists when sighting down the guides.

I can't remember what it was called? Anyone remember?

Berkley had some relatively early braid white line which I think was called "Gorilla". I still have an empty spool - used the spool for storing some other line.

Spiderwire. If you liked that, you'll love Spiderwire Stealth!! Round, smaller diameter, and has that same awesome teflon coating.

With your fondness for braid I wanted to try to find some and give it to you.....

Actually, the (most recent) thread on braid got me to thinking back on the various types of braid that have come and gone. I was kind of surprised that it has been around for so long.

I know I learned the first day of use to not grab it and pull in a large stick that I had picked up trolling!! It was about like Limeyangler and the hook episode of a few days ago.

Hey Bill,

Could you take a picture of the spool and see if I recognize it? I was thinking that Gorilla came out sometime after my first encounter with braid.

Not a big deal, but was just trying to revive some old near death brain cells.

Be safe my friend.

Don't remember the exact sequence but I remember waiting for it to come out, and then the quest for the first fish on the new super sensitive line. I believe it was yellow Kevlar line, but I don't really remember the details.
